RALEIGH, N.C. (Oct. 27, 2005) – Carolina Trailways, a subsidiary of Dallas-based Greyhound Lines, Inc., now offers expanded daily service and new express routes between Raleigh and Charlotte, N.C. A second route between Raleigh and Charlotte also was added and includes stops in communities that previously weren’t served.
Carolina Trailways now provides 10 daily schedules departing from Raleigh and 10 more leaving Charlotte, which travel between the two cities along Interstate 40 and Interstate 85. Previously, only two daily schedules between the cities departed from Charlotte with three departing from Raleigh. Half of these schedules are new express schedules that run non-stop along the same route.
“The increased frequency of service between Raleigh and Charlotte, as well as the new express routes, present customers with more flexibility and a new level of convenience when traveling,” said Elvis Latiolais, general manager, Carolina Trailways.
The newest route travels along U.S. Highway 64 and N.C. Highway 49, with stops in Apex, Pittsboro, Siler City, Ramseur, Asheboro, Farmer, Richfield and Mount Pleasant, N.C., connecting new communities to a nationwide bus network via the Raleigh and Charlotte stations. The daily round-trip fare is $60, and a one-way fare is $30.
“Carolina Trailways is extremely excited to expand service to central North Carolina,” Latiolais said. “This route provides bus service to citizens from communities that previously weren’t served.”
